O Velho a História de Luiz Carlos Prestes ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1997 in Portuguese and held by 31 libraries worldwide
The Comrade is the story of a myth, a man who became a legend, a man who embodied a cause. Controversial leader of the Brazilian Communist Party (PCB) for over 35 years, Prestes believed in the ideals which today are buried beneath the ruins of the Berlin Wall. The film covers seventy years of Brazil's chaotic contemporary history, of which Prestes was one of the principal protagonists. Includes commentary by journalists, historians, family members, and former PCB activists interwoven with rare historical film footage.
